Sometimes I like to just walk in my city and see what I can see (and with my camera in-hand, to capture and share images of what is to be seen). So it was on Saturday afternoon (2016 February 27). I walked Jasper Avenue from 96 Street to 116 Street, but in this blog post I will focus on a short section of that trek.
It was on the few blocks east of 109 Street that my eye was particularly active, seeing things of interest in some of the buildings old and new:
Sidewalk tunnel on the south side of Jasper Avenue, east of 109 Street
and peeking into the ground floor of the construction site to the south of this tunnel (left in the above photo):

It was early morning, just before sunrise, but with the heavy overcast sky and light snow falling how would you know?. Overnight, this part of Edmonton had 5 to 10 cm of the lightest, fluffiest snow you can imagine. For a few hours we were living in a winter wonderland.
and finally an image from the same morning, which is interesting even though not featuring the snow:
